. why is light versus dark still an issue? maybe the broader america doesn't understand lighter skinned black people were treated better because they were seen more proximate to the dominant white culture, given better privileges in slavery because they were produced by unions between white men and black women. there is a huge tension in the broader society. lighter skinned blacks are seen tore liked by whites. negro dialect, what does that mean? jesse jackson is one of the most eloquent men we know, so is al sharpton. they all ran for president of the united states of america. joe biden made the same comments. mr. obama needs to step up to the bully pulpit and not be loathe to deal with the issue of race and say this is a teachable moment. yes, we can can accept the apology of mr. reid. let's deal with light skinned versus dark skinned and teach america about some of these more vicious issues. otherwise they do look like hypocrites in my book. >> i heard so many people over the weekend say they were surprised by this but you cover the election, as did i. there were people who did not u

disadvantageous dark skinned americans. white america americns are lessg to vote for dark skinned americans. >> despite the quote/unquote negro dialect, is there truth to what he said? >> it's stupid. first of all, if you're running for re-election and you have part of your electorate that is black, don't call them negroes. i don't think there's a double standard there. that is stupid. i don't think there's a double standard. i think it's a throwback. i think he misspoke and he's paying the price for it? >> in terms of what peter mentioned in terms of a light-termed bias, does that exist? >> look back in slavery and see that clearly. there have been many, many studies that show there have been, when you look at elected officials, peter has done a lot of research and stuff he writes for the daily beast are about this. elected officials are more likely to be elected who have lighter skin. these are not conversations people don't have. black people talk about this. white people talk about it. don't talk about it together. they talk about it. so i think what harry reid has done is sort of raise

's the big deal there? black men right now in corporate america, there are black men in buildings, media companies, all over the place, where you don't want to be called the angry black man. they changed how they walk, what they wear, they cut their beards. they look certain ways because they know people are going to make a decision based upon how they look and how they sound. if we never, ever talk about this stuff, then we don't realize it exists. so as a black man, look, i'm very sensitive if somebody says, roland, you're an angry guy. i know exactly what that means to somebody else's ears. that could have a negative impact on me in the future. we never talk about it, we never learn from it. >> we're going to have more in a moment. >>> let us know what you think about this debate. join the live chat at ac360.com. about to log on. >>> much more ahead about politics and race and why some are saying harry reid was speaking the truth, as we heard about an ugly reality that studies show even young kids pick up on. i want to show you little bit of something we're going to show you more afte
, reverend sharpton, have you a majority leader, one of the most powerful people in america, going around using the term "negro dialect?" >> it's a concern, but whether or not it is enough to ask him to step aside given his record and the fact that he was saying why he felt his candidate can win. i might add, joe, we did not bring up trent lot, the republicans did. the republican chairman said we were raising a double standard. we did not use on senator reid what we used on senator lott. we didn't bring up lott. i don't know anyone who would have made that outrageous comparison. >> reverend, did you read what harry reid's reaction to trent lott's comments were? not to get too deep in the weeds here, but it doesn't help back up the point that there really can't be a parallel here. because obviously trent lott made the comments about strom thurmond that led to his demise and harry reid had a reaction to those comments and i'd like if we could put them up on the screen. he basically said he wouldn't do something like that, and that's how you play. in 2000, then senator-obama suggested -- >>
on america. one year later, major garrett has a look back at the president's foreign policy. >> the president's biggest foreign policy hoop came at the end of his first year, sending 30,000 additional troops to afghanistan to combat a tenacious taliban. >> i'm convinced that our security is at stake in afghanistan and pakistan. >> when mr. obama accepted his noble peace prize he surprised some by defending his expanded afghan war as crucial to winning a post 9/11 peace. republicans backed this decision but not what came with it. >> his simultaneous announcement of his desire for an early commencement of withdrawal of american forces sent a very bad signal. >> signals, mr. obama has tried to send new ones as with his speech to the muslim world in cairo. at big summits the president acknowledged what he called u.s. missteps in foreign policy, economics and the environment. >> it is not just the apologies that make a difference, it is the overall weakness and decline in defending american interests. >> the white house and its allies call it practicallal honesty. >> he has shown a sincetivity to
my press credentials because there is no reason why i private citizen in the united states of america... >> i want to just, this is the part you're holding up credentials. he's in your face being overly aggressive here. then, you have the right to walk on a street. don't you? >> yes. any citizen as right to walk on -- anyone has right to walk on public streets in washington, d.c.. and approach a candidate running for elective office. the question the candidate has a right not to answer. and reporters are right to -- have a right to repeat their questions. i've spoken to cokely before. >> last question. we're running out of time. you only wanted to ask about comments all terrorists left afghanistan. it's a good question. she said she's not privy to the facts surrounding this incident of we have a picture. she's looking at you on the ground. >> i mean, she could have asked any, that operative working on the campaign what happened. she was walking a little bit of'd of me. she heard the clanging and she turned around when she saw that. i believe. i was on the ground. i don't know exactly
him. there's no reason a private citizen in the united states of america -- >> sean: this is the part where you are holding up your credential, getting in your face being overly aggressive. you have the right to walk on a street, don't you? >> yes, any citizen has the right to walk on the streets public streets in washington, d.c. and approach a candidate running for elective office. the candidate has the right not to answer. reporters have a right to repeat their questions. i've spoken to coakley before and she answered some of my questions. >> sean: you only wanted to ask about her comment that alter s have left afghanistan, which is ab hurt. coakley said she is not privy to the facts surrounding the incident. we have that picture, where she is looking right at you on the ground. is that disingenuous? >> i mean, she could have easily asked the operative working on her campaign what happened. she was walking a little ahead of me. she heard the clanking and she turned around when she saw that i believe. again, i was on the ground so i don't know which way she was looking when the push
to america by the end of the year. but i don't think he did enough for us who are unemployed. he gave no remarks, no speech, anything about helping us who are running out of unemployment. he did not talk about helping us to extend these unemployment benefits for all of us who are running out. a lot of us will become homeless. host: what caller: did you do i was a maintenance engineer. host: he focused a lot on it jobs -- and what are you worried about? good luck. next, antonio, an independent. caller: yes, i want to say something about mr. obama last night. the speech was mediocre, same song. i hope the people in this country realize the condition this country is in. forget the war, there is one song in italia that says [ quality and italian words] -- america is a beautiful country. no one can beat us, and if we want we can do. we need to thrive these things going on in the washington for so many years. they don't care for the everyday people. host: antonio says words, words, words. there is a project at the university that keeps all kinds of statistics on presidential speeches. about
wins tomorrow the president will be badly damaged and all political hell will break loose in america. obama care could crash and burn. americans simply do not like the corrupt bargains being struck in the healthcare arena. louisiana, nebraska, far left unions like the seiu have all been bribed, bribed into supporting obama care. that is not change we can believe in. that is not hope of any kind. that is backdoor politics of the worst kind and the folks know it. on the economic front i believe the president is doing the best he can. but unemployment remains tie and taxes in massachusetts very high. thickthings are not good there. adding it all up big time political disenchantment. i know the bay state, i worked there for years and democratic party is very strong. so mr. brown is not a lock but he is ahead in the polls. late today, a survey by insider advantage gave the republican a nine-point lead and some obama people in washington reportedly think it is all over. but it isn't. so please check out "the factor" tomorrow night. we will be live and have the latest on the race. let's bri

, that is going to blow an enormous hole in this health care plan that already is blown a huge hole in america's wallet. that has to be filled. >> gregg: where are you going to get the money? >> you, me, all the viewers, we're going to have fill in that hole that they just punched and it's going to come in the form of taxes and fees and not to mention the sort of suppressed growth and things like that that people argue always come with higher taxes in the first place. >> gregg: if the bill passes, seniors are going to have to give up medicare benefits, doctors are going to have accept less money, hospitals will be a southbound more costs, non-union workers are going to pay more, but union members are the ones that get the big break. people aren't stupid. they are going recognize what is going on here. might this come back to haunt the president and democrats? >> -- oh, i think absolutely. americans hate unfairness. they just don't like it. one of the things that caused republicans to get thrown out of office was this feeling among voters that republicans were picking winners and losers. and wh
anything on wall street. he's really the kind of guy that wants to stick it to the wage earners of america. where is the middle class in this entire cycle? compare it to the guy that held the seat for us so many years, ted kennedy. >> how much more do we have to give to the private sector and to business? how many billion dollars more are you asking, are you requiring? when does the greed stop? >> you know what this is about? this is about loyalty to change. and i find it so interesting that all of the polls out there and everybody out there says coakley is going to lose. wait a second. grab the moment, liberals. grab the moment, democrats. you mean to tell me that the conservatives, they were loyal enough to give george w. bush a second term but were not loyal enough to give barack obama is second year with the majority? massachusetts, that means you just saw who represented you for 46 years. do you really want his successor to be a dick cheney disciple? part of the problem for the democrats is feeding strong candidates with this turnover as far as age is concerned. you've got a long time
someone very dear to massachusetts, and to america. senator ted kennedy was a tireless and big-hearted public servant, and for most of my lifetime was a force like no other in this state. [applause] his name will always command the affection and respect by the people a massachusetts and i said to be filled the same about her. there's no replacing a man like that, but tonight i honor his memory, and i pledge my very best to be a worthy successor. i said at the very beginning, when i sat down at the dinner table with my family, that win or lose we would run a race which would make us all proud. i kept my word and we ran a clean, issues oriented, upbeat campaign - and i wouldn't trade that for anything. when i first started running, i asked for a lot of help, because i knew it was going to be me against the machine. i was wrong, it was all of us against the machine. tonight we have shown everybody now and that you of the machine. i'm glad my mom and dad, brothers, sisters, and so many family members are here tonight. once again, before i go any further, i want to introduce somebod

viewers to understand is the fact that total debt in america is, in fact, the not dproeg. it's a widely spread belief that all debt in america is growing out of control. in reality, the private sector is contracting faster than the government is spending and i think this is reducing the amount of dollars in circulation. when you reduce the supply, you drive up the price. >> very interesting, emil. we're going to leave it there for now and you'll be with us throughout the hour. right now, let's get you caught up on some of the big stories we've been following around the globe. president obama's chances of passing health care reform suffer a major setback as scott brown, republican, wins the senate seat held by ted kennedy in massachusetts. democrats may not have enough time now to resolve differences between the house and the senate health care bill and get new cost estimates before brown is sworn in. that leaves house democrats with the unpalatable option of trying to pass a senate bill that many disagree with. that stinging defeat in the senate comes on the one year anniversary of pres
election came about because we lost someone very, very dear to massachusetts and to america, senator ted kennedy was a tireless worker and a big-hearted public servant. and for most of his lifetime was a force like no other in this state. the first call i made was to his wife vicki and i told her that his name will always command the affection and respect by the people of massachusetts. and i said, we feel the same about her. there's no replacing a man like that, but tonight i honor the memory and i pledge to be the very best and try to be a worthy successor to the late senator kennedy. >> and here's some of what attorney general martha coakley said tonight at her concession speech. let's listen. >> anyone who's been out on the campaign trail, particularly in this race, has seen the anger of folks who are frustrated, concerned. they are angry about health care issues and they're angry about our two wars, our inability to properly care for those who return home after fighting. i had hoped in the best interests of our state and the country to go to washington to address these issues. i hop

. until you understand that the america we occupy is the product, to a huge extent, of people who are still living -- think about it this way. someplace between 33% to 40% of today's gross domestic product comes out of firm that did not exist in 1980. now, i think if every economist who advises government had that tattooed there, 40% of the g.d.p. comes from firms that didn't exist 30 years ago, we'd have different policy. >> steven douglas. at the university level where we're teaching our college students about starting companies and assessing risks and calculating risks, should entrepreneurship education be, well, education or more experience? >> frank? >> if i may. i think the experience is the education. i will answer it very simply. you have to experience what it is to be an entrepreneur. in many places, stanford, m.i.t., for example, wisconsin, the institute in akron, we're doing the same. we take teams of students and we expose them to problems. in our case we have teams including an m.b.a. student, shadowing orthopedic surgeons, looking at the things they are doing. to det
